by | Read by Samantha Eggar

Fiction • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1999

Samantha Eggar skillfully meets the challenges presented by rich characterizations and a well-written story of a young Scotsman who assuages his grief at the loss of his wife by working as a handyman on a U.S. estate. Eggar brings to life a full cast of Scottish and American characters as diverse as the housekeeper, Effie, and a team of time-starved Madison Avenue executives. Eggar's vocal characterizations, range of Highland accents, and dialect portray each nuance of the characters' personalities with compassion and subtlety. Her lively and spontaneous plot narration complements the characterizations to create engaging audio theater. R.M. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 99]
